Blake Mycoskie is the Founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS, and the visionary global leader behind the One-for-One business model. TOMS has given away more than 86 million pairs of shoes, and this is all Blake’s brainchild. Blake has one of the most innovative minds I’ve ever been exposed to. In this episode he shares a recent Why Not Now? moment that has led to the mobilization of nearly 700k people, and counting, all with the shared goal of ending gun violence in the United States.

Blake also talks through why the entrepreneurial fight is worth it, his thoughts on work/life balance, his advice of utilizing your intuition and much more.
